On Sunday, October 1st, Vicar Day and Seminarian Juan de Dios (Cristo Rey in El Paso) will swap congregations and pulpits. During Sunday Morning Learning, adults are invited to learn about Rostered Ministry in the ELCA (Deacons and Pastors) and the process (candidacy) for becoming rostered. How does and could Peace Lutheran support Rostered Ministers and Candidates for Ministry?
We will be joined by a Synod Council Member (Susan Mitchell), Synod Staff Member (Ruth Hoffman), former and current Candidacy Committee members for the Rocky Mountain Synod, seminarian Juan, and our own Pastor Jared and Deacon Laura. The presentation will be held in the Bethlehem Room at 10:30am (during Sunday Morning Learning – Sunday School and childcare are available).
A Thrivent Action Team is providing refreshments for the presentation and will help support seminary expenses for Juan de Dios. You will also be invited to make donations towards his seminary expenses.
